Goodbye "Puck"

Hall of Famer Kirby Pucket dies at 44

This is a bummer. I'm a die-hard Braves fan and I remember October of 1991 and having me little heart broke by the Puck with a game winning home run in the 11th inning of the World Series. We had the Twins down 3-2 in the series up to that point. As a long suffering "Bravo", I had waited a long time for my team to get to the Big Dance. He jogged around the bases with that big grin on his face and I threw the remote control at the TV (Never been a good loser!). What a moment!

The Twins went on to win the series of the "Worst to First" teams that year, the first time in history that two such teams ever played. At the end I stood up in my living room and clapped. It was a great series - even if we didn't win.

But I would also become a fan of Puck and admired not only his play on the field, but his character off the field.

He was truly a class act.

Thanks Puck!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
